I was at the game last night and I don’t know how much they showed of it last night but the rains were absolutely torrential in nature.
Absolute worst weather ever for a ball game that I have been too.
They evacuated all of us to the tunnels at about 7:00 CST for precautionary reasons due to tornado alerts and severe thunderstorms.
I really thought they would actually play and just start around 8:45 or 9:00 PM CST, But they called it and we have a double header at 2:30 and then game 2 will be at 7:05.
So for all the east coast fans that will be at 1:30 and 6:05.
I’m hoping that they get them both in today because this is the only scheduled trip that the Yankees are making to Texas this year.
Both of today’s Yankees/Rangers games will be available on both YES and MLB.TV.
It was supposed to be Pettitte against Tejada last night but now it will Pettitte against Millwood in game one and Moose against Tejada in game two.
Kevin Millwood has been complaining about an aggravated left hamstring on Wednesday andwill be evaluated Thursday morning, with right-handed long reliever
Mike Wood prepared to step in if needed. Millwood is 0-2 with an 8.10
ERA in his past three starts.
Also left-handers are hitting
.346 off him which is good since the Yankees are very left handed. Look to see Damon in the line up.
Millwood is 1-1 with a 6.00
ERA in two starts at home and he’s 1-4 with a 4.82 ERA in six career
starts against the Yankees.
Well, gotta run….
I’ll post more when I can…
LETS GO YANKEES and hopefully we sweep the double header and the series !
